The Ladies Behind Creative Bead Chat

Pin It Creative Bead Chat, aka CBC, is a facebook group created by a group of ladies for the express purpose of discussing....what else?? Beads! lol! Or to put it more specifically.....

A home for creative component and jewelry designers to share new creations, tool tips and help build our creativity and sales ! A home for new designers as well experienced to share your experiences and ask questions. Ultimately we are a team and work together towards the goal of being proud of our accomplishments and accomplishing our dreams...welcome to Creative Bead Chat!
Only rule...Treat others as you would like to be treated :-)

It's one of my go to places when I have a question or just want to ogle the amazing creations that members post each day. Their talents are many and varied and you can be certain to get your questions answered by this very diverse group. The admins of this wonderful group are:

Melinda Orr of Melinda Orr Designs. I have had the good fortune to collaborate with Melinda on a design recently that was very well received. She makes most, if not all, of her metal components. Check out her etsy shop for more of her beautiful designs!

Marla James of Marla's Mud is a super talented ceramic artist. I am fortunate to have some of her work myself. She has an etsy shop where you can see her work. I love her new raku work:

There's not one, but TWO Marla's on CBC! Marla Gibson of Spice Box Designs. Her etsy shop is currently closed due to health issues, but I found this darling earring pair amongst her sold listings.

Karen Totten, another talented ceramicist of Starry Road Studio, sells beautiful jewelry and components. I just love these bronze charms that I found in her etsy shop!

Last, but not least is Keirsten Giles of Lune Artisan Jewelry. Keirsten creates unique jewelry pieces using the highest quality components such as artisan lampwork glass beads, semi-precious stones and her own beautiful OOAK metal components. I love this necklace that I found in her etsy shop.

Many thanks to all these wonderful ladies for creating a space for us all to share, enjoy and laugh together!
